Now that the Torre-to-Dodgers speculation has finally become official and we know where the dear man will be hanging his managerial hat for the next few years, I think it’s fair to start the conjecture over which former Yanks he’ll be taking cross-country with him. It seems fairly clear from rumors all around the interwebs (if someone writes it online, then it MUST be true, obv) and from the not-so-subtle clues we can take from his various press conferences/interviews that Mattingly will end up serving as Torre’s right-hand man on the bench in LA, but there is also speculation that Larry Bowa and Lee Mazzilli will be on board, too. It sounds like the Dodgers are giving Torre all the leeway in the world to do as he pleases with his coaching staff, and I’ve yet to hear of a man that has worked with Torre that doesn’t like working with him, so it stands to reason that whomever Torre wants in LA, he can probably have. The thought of the old Torre-Mattingly duo in the dugout together in Dodger blue rather than pinstripes strikes me as simultaneously creepy and reassuring – creepy because, of course, we’ve never seen Mattingly in anything BUT pinstripes and we have become so accustomed to thinking of Torre as a "Yankee", and reassuring because they are just a heartwarming twosome.

Once a contingent of ex-Yanks has formed over in LA in the form of management and coaching, then the REAL fun can begin: the "will A-Rod, Mariano, Pettitte or Posada end up back with Torre and Mattingly in 2008??!" game. If this was to happen, and we see a whole crew of Yanks favorites out in LA, will we see some Yankees fans heading to the Dark Side to root for the enemy? Will the poor YCD (Yankees Chick Dad), who spent his whole life rooting against the Dodgers, have to support the team because of his love for Torre et al? Tis a conundrum I have a feeling we will all be facing very soon...

    The only good things about the Dodgers are Dodger dogs and Vin Scully.

    As much as I love Torre, where have we gone in the last 7 years? His bad decisions from Proctor to Farnsworth...he can do that out in L.A...Speaking of which...isn't Proctor with the Dodgers? Since Torre LOVES HIM SO MUCH!!! Also, BO BO (BOBBY ABREU) is back for another year!

    Come on now Yankees-Chick! I thought you'd be up to speed. #46 has already stated he will either play for the Yankees in 08 or retire. This is of course assuming that he's not a backstabber like A-Rod.

    And DAMN, I was hoping Abreu would be FINISHED in Pinstripes. Oh well, would've been nice to ditch both A-Rod and Abreu to free up some salary to get some pitching!

    scott proctors' right arm: glad to hear you are even still alive. i was thinking about you the moment i heard torre was heading your way. i'm very sorry for you :(

    joe: i know pettitte says that now, but who can trust these peeps. look at clemens! hehe :)

    Clemens is a whore, Pettitte's not. And there's no way your Dad can root for the Dodgers. It's not in a Yankee fans blood.

    the L.A. Times today was not ecstatic about the Torre move, saying a good management staff is worth a few games at most, and I am not sure 100% that Torre is a good manager. Also, YCD will not shift alliance, you know that better than most as well as the fact that you will not follow an NL Braves/Cardinal blindly. A-Rod does not bother me as much as the potential of Posada departure, and pitching may be sound enough within a yr. or 2 not to miss Pettitte should he traitor again. Clemens ain't going anywhere, but Mariano owes it to his fans and himself to remain in pinstripes, albeit he may only have a few yrs. left. Just be thankful that CBS is not regaining ownership as that was disaster regardless of what the Steins may bring to the table. We will be OK. Torre is by far the least of these issues.

    oh no, the YCD will certainly not change alliances, i just wonder if he will have to soften his dodger hatred a tad now that some of his beloved yanks are over there...
